SubjectRe: [PATCH] selinux: add selinux_is_enforced() function

The idea behind this patch and the other one was to replicate what is
done with selinux_is_enabled(). As I understand it now,
selinux_is_enabled() should remain the only exception to the LSM
So do you agree if I propose a new security_is_enforced() function at
the LSM abstraction layer, which will be hooked to a
selinux_is_enforced() function defined inside the SELinux LSM?
